Marijuana. Cannabis. Weed. Pot. Ganja. Where is it legal in the world today?
 
What are the policies for recreational marijuana inside the U.S., and how do the state laws reconcile with the federal Controlled Substances Act?
 
What changes do Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions have in store?
ALSO: Roy Moore has now been accused of sex crimes. What say you that we see to it he never wins a U.S. Senate seat? Cool?

It's the Habeas Humor election spectacular!!!
 
Laugh and learn about the upcoming elections for U.S. Senator from Alabama; Virginia Governor; New Jersey Governor, and more!
 
Correction, 5:20 pm 11/2/17: Chaffetz math error on my part. He served 1/8 of his third term, not 7/8. Doh 🤦🏻‍♀️
 
Note: if the Chris Christie clip is not playing correctly, it is apparently an iPhone problem. It also apparently corrects itself eventually. That's about all I know!

This episode starts off with my two cents on the documentary "One of Us" and its subject, Hasidic Jews.
 
After that you will get the details on Tuesday's Senate vote to repeal the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rule on class-action lawsuits against banks.
 
Finally, sports betting laws and the pending US Supreme Court case by the state of New Jersey seeking to invalidate the federal ban.

Simon Beauvoir, cohost of the new feminist podcast Cherchez la Femme (@cherchezpodcast), tells the true story of his long court battle to get his three children vaccinated.

Simon grew up a member of a fundamentalist Christian sect and married into an anti-education, anti-vax, Quiverfull family. When Simon lost his religious faith, his marriage did not survive. The real conflict started, however, when Simon tried to bring medical science into his children's lives against the staunch objections of his estranged wife.

Trump's magnum opus wall, much like the rest of him, has nearly no chance of ever becoming erect. Nonetheless, we have begun paying for it (the wall and, in all likelihood, the boner efforts as well).
 
In international legal news, Hong Kong has taken a tiny step towards LGBT equality. Saudi Arabia has done the same for women... maybe.
 
(Oops I forgot the news and video links! I will add them tonight)

An (almost) hour's worth of dirt on big pharma: inflated vaccine prices result in dead children; misleading opioid marketing results in heroin addicts and dead adults; politicians and doctors are on the payroll.
 
... Oh, and the scum running the Morristown, New Jersey city government are giving people's tax money to churches.

Today we talk with a juror from a Los Angeles double murder trial where the defendant was a certain ill-tempered guy who appeared in movies (nope, not him - a different guy).
 
 
Our guest is Michael Schaffer, owner of Reason Real Estate and host of the upcoming podcast Reasonable Risk.
 
 
We discuss Michael's experience on the jury that convicted Lloyd Avery II, and we also highlight some of the serious problems with American criminal trials.

Wondering what was up with those seemingly random anti-sharia marches last Saturday? We get to the bottom of it. In the process, you will learn a ton about the anti-Muslim organization ACT for America; its leader Brigitte Gabriel; and the financial and political motives behind these marches.  
 
CORRECTION, 6/14/17, 4:00pm: According to Twitter, planning for the 6/10/17 March Against Sharia began (or at least went public) on about 4/20/17.

Did you know the bloody tale of the Mormon church's early years? Listen up and you will!
 
Is the LDS church a cult? What is a cult? Are dangerous cults beyond the reach of the law?
 
We also discuss convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

This episode dishes the dirt on "Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller's conviction and sentencing.

Strip club employment policies go under the microscope (and it's as gross as you think).

I personally thank all the wonderful people who have reviewed this show on iTunes!

On this episode, we talk religious free exercise law. There's the First Amendment, the RFRA, and the RLUIPA. Ex-Navyman Matthew Maxon helps me work on cursing like a sailor in reaction to all the frustrating aspects of the laws in this area.
